We are excited to introduce you to the new Bitty Big line of basic patterned papers. We heard our customers loud and clear and you love to have the basics on hand, but you don't want to spend a lot of money to invest in all the colors. These collections will be offered in single color packages, with a few new colors being introduced each month. Each package will contain 3 patterns, stripes, dotes and gingham. The three patterns are printed double sided, with one side featuring a small version of the pattern and the other side featuring large scale. So you get two options for your designs with less sheets to invest in!

  • Each collection includes 24 sheets (8 sheets of each double-sided pattern). 
  • Each sheet features the bitty version of the pattern on one side, and the reverse features the big version.
  • Printed on smooth 8-1/2" x 11" text weight paper.
  • The collections will be available in Pinefeather, Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse on August 15th.


Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!


Wanda Guess is featuring Silver White Winters. 

What a classic! I am loving the simple red and white color scheme here! Wanda created her own background with the various sizes of snowflakes stamped in white. The small touches of splattered white ink help to make everything cohesive.


  • STAMPS: Silver White Winters, Beautiful Berries: Winter
  • INK: Fresh Snow, Pure Poppy, Versamark
  • PAPER: Pure Poppy patterned paper, Kraft Cardstock
  • OTHER: Twine, White Paint, Clear Rhinestones


Isn't the detail in this die-cut just dreamy? I love that the largest snowflake will fit on the new Berry Wreath Tag die. The addition of the Beautiful Berries: Winter sprigs to the top of the tag add such a festive touch.


  • STAMPS: Silver White Winters, Keep It Simple: Winter, Beautiful Berries: Winter
  • INK: Fresh Snow, New Leaf, Scarlet Jewel
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Kraft, Pure Poppy, Pure Poppy Patterned Paper
  • DIES: Silver White Winters, Beautiful Berries: Winter, Berry Wreath Tag
  • OTHER: Buttons, Twine, Pearls


I love the way Wanda did the ink blending here. It really accents all of the detail of the heat embossed snowflakes. The vellum strip is such a clever way to add the sentiment without taking away from the background design.


  • STAMPS: Silver White Winters
  • INK: Versamark, Enchanted Evening, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist Ink
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Vellum, Silver Shimmer
  • OTHER: White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Ink Blending Tool, Blue Enamel Dots



Stephanie Gold is featuring Wine Bottle #2 Tag and Keep it Simple: Winter Wishes.

How gorgeous is this tag by Stephanie? Loving the corrugated cardstock texture paired up with the delicate white snowflake die-cuts. The sentiment banner (included with the Wine Bottle Tag #2 die set!) in white helps to add that needed third element of white to add balance to the two snowflakes.


  • STAMPS: Keep It Simple: Warm Winter Wishes
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Kraft Corrugated Cardstock
  • DIES: Wine Bottle Tag #2, Silver White Winters


This tag is just as wonderful as the last! How amazing are all of those layered snowflakes? The twine tied around the front of the tag really sets of the Kraft sentiment strip.


  • STAMPS: Keep It Simple: Warm Winter Wishes
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Kraft Cardstock, Black Corrugated Cardstock, Simply Chartreuse Big Bitty Pattern Paper
  • DIES: Wine Bottle Tag #2, Silver White Winters
  • OTHER: Iridescent Glitter, Texture Paste, Natural Twine


I love that Stephanie is showing us how to use the Wine Bottle Tag #2 dies on a card. The background element she created with the Keep It Simple: Winter Wishes set is just awesome. Finally, those small touches of stitching at the top of the tag adds a nice finishing detail.


  • STAMPS: Keep It Simple: Warm Winter Wishes
  • INK: True Black
  • PAPER: Stampers Select White, Pure Poppy Big Bitty Pattern Paper, Vellum
  • DIES: Wine Bottle Tag #2
  • OTHER: Black & White Polka Dot Washi Tape, Black Embroidery Thread, Seam Binding
